Performance – Rite of Spring

Rite of Spring. A playground lost in (dys)function, (dis)order and earplugs. A leftover tarp and a rake without a handle, and a bunch of other everyday objects share space with the three dancers trying to execute a very accurate version of The Rite of Spring.


A great classic, reformulated by Norrdans’ Artistic Director Martin Forsberg. This creation is a macrocosm in a small space, where scales, volume and vibrations take center stage. The beauty finds its place next to the sublime, and the captivating next to the distorted. The dance comes dangerously close and the grand notes of composer Stravinsky manifest in a small but explosive ensemble, a form of rebellious playfulness and total lack of sacrifice.
